I took the beef fillet with a pepper and brandy sauce. Perfectly cooked with a lovely taste.
The staff was very observant and served you quickly.

“The best fillet ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

We were staying at the Meintjieskop Guest Lodge, just up the hill from Cafe41, which was recommended by the owner. It was a Thursday evening and the terrace was quite busy, but we managed to get a table for two. We decided on Beef Kebabs, Fillet Special and a bottle of Chocoholic pinotage, which turned out to be an excellent combination. I have never had such a tender steak, it melted in the mouth, it was so succulent, it was just the best fillet steak I have ever had. The beef kebabs were equally delicious and were accompanied by a greek salad and cooked vegetables, including sweet patats, my favourite. The service was warm, friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“nice food, good service and mostly in a nice setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

I like Cafe 41 and it's consistency of quality of food and service. Decent portions and good value. I absolutely love the variety of coffees and esperically the "iced ones" are just divine! Good quick eat over lunch for a decent price. Will go back and visit any of them.
